Letter: Senate grinches

December 7, 2012


To the editor:

It’s a dubious honor to reside in a state with two of the biggest grinches this Christmas season has to offer. I refer, of course, to the two U.S. senators from Kansas, Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts, who voted against the U.N. treaty for the disabled. Even the appearance of the beloved former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole in a wheelchair could not melt the hearts of these men who appear to have hearts made of ice. I doubt if there is a medical remedy for this particular affliction, short of a defeat at the polls.

Sen. Dole was a true leader, one who did not bow down to the radical elements in the GOP. Our present senators could learn something from this man of principle. I have a feeling he is shaking his head in disbelief, wondering what happened to his beloved Senate.

Can't agree with you more. This state is losing respect all over the world for the dubious and unseemly actions of our senators.

Senator Dole is part of a now almost extinct group of leaders - a statesman. Not a politician. Even though he has retired, I use the term IS because he obviously still keeps up to date with current political events and apparently felt strongly enough about this bill to attend the vote. A now frail man who did dedicate his life to serving not just the people of Kansas, but the entire US. Sighting one of these rare specimins in the political sewer that has now become our Nations Capitol is likely impossible. Instead we get folks like Moran and Roberts, who are blindly led by shudder someone like Santorum.
Ms. Slimmer, by comparing our current Kansas Senators to grinches, you do the grinches a disservice.

Send in the clowns. Oh wait, we elected these bozos.
